Everyday in May Let's Celebrate Layout

Good morning crafty friends!
I hope you’re getting ready for another fun weekend of paper crafting! I am sure many of you have some fabulous plans for National Scrapbook Day! Be sure to include a stop here to CWC as we will be having another wonderful Everyday in May project and FREEBIE!

But for today, Jean, of www.jeanscraftycorner.blogspot.com, one of our wonderful Creative Designers has a simply sweet project for you!
I wanted to show how you can take dollar store items and decorate them for your party theme for less.  I started out with a yellow bag and pack of yellow plates and cups from the dollar store.
I then used the Birthday Cakes Cricut Cake cartridge to cut the Let's Party and the George and Basic Shapes cartridge for the flowers.  I used pink vinyl to cut all of the decorations for the cups, plates and bag.  I then used pink cardstock and cut the flowers to decorate the straws.  For the straws, you will need to enlarge the circle in the middle for the straws to fit through.
Be sure to head over to Jean’s Blog for complete details including cut sizes, etc!

Now for today’s Everyday in May Freebie #6 

In keeping with Jean’s wonderful project theme of Birthday Celebrating, I created this super easy scrapbook page.

let's celebrate-500
Here is my layout. I used the following to complete this project:

The Blue, purple and numbered patterned papers are all from the AMAZING DCWV CELEBRATION STACK! Some of the numbers on the number paper are foiled! It really makes the layout dazzle!

ALSO the Birthday wish journaling block and the my little cupcake graphic are from this same stack! Just cut and paste!
